On January 26, 1960, Boston Red Sox outfielder Jackie Jensen announces his retirement, only months after enjoying one of his best seasons-28 home runs, 112 RBIs, and a .277 average. Jensen’s fear of flying plays a part in his decision to leave the game. In 1961, Jensen will return to the Sox before retiring once again when he will hit .263, and then retire for good at age 34.
